I give it that long b/c the owner will figure out a way to launder enough money to keep it up longer than 6
I haven't been there yet, but I heard the owner (or group of owners) also own T-Bones, Mike's Hole in the Wall, and a few other places... I'm guessing they will do just fine... All they need is half decent service. Cause beer, billiards, sports, & babes generally don't turn away a crowd.

Isn't that your standard response to every new restaurant? I know the owner group and I know the business they're doing and I believe Hill City will do just fine. Their pizza is actually pretty fine and it is a no-smoking environment, a nice option to the smokier pool halls down town.

>>I'll give 18 months.<<
Isn't that your standard response to every new restaurant?
No. Stoned's usual response is, "I give it 6 months". Which is exactly how long he has ever held a real job, revealing that "6 months" is his life experience window. Kinda like an episode of "Dirty Jobs" without all the commercials.
Predicting "18 months" clearly demonstrates Stoned is actually growing up and really trying to expand his former drive thru limited world view to one that is more, like, "Expanded" beyond the drive thru speaker and the, "Pay at the first window, please" place.
I, for one, am proud of him. He keeps this up, he can begin to be a functioning, and necessary, part of society as a whole.
I give Stoned 6 months at his new-found "Expansion".

The old owners were basically forced out so sold to the developers. They didn'tlet anyof the performing artists know about stuff and have really burned the performing community around town. No joking about the ICE, that's not fair.
Red, maybe she did work on the Oprah show. I don't recall that, but maybe she did. But I am 100% positive she worked on Letterman show either as an intern or as an employee. I remember Letterman kidding her about the surname of her fiance. Huckaby. (Huckabay?) David used to joke about the regal sound of that name and Bridgett would giggle.
David intentionally had her on the show all the time so NBC and GE would be forced to pay her the minimum union scale fee. She was a natural on TV. It seemed like she was on almost every night. There is no telling how much she made from her appearances. I conservatively guessed $10K, but it easily could have been much more.
LR: Hard to find good muffins. What kind do they have?
The reason that no one locally remembers her on the Letterman show is because they did have have Letterman on the air in Chattanooga at the time. The 700 Club was on in place of Letterman here at the time.
I, in another town at the time, remember the show where she announced she was leaving Dave's show to start a restaurant in Chattanooga. This was a long time ago, when the Late Show was good and Letterman was still funny.
